(2004 Vintage) Andre Brunel, the renowned producer in Chateauneuf-du-Pape of Les Cailloux has produced this wonderfully, juicy wine for us. This is a blend of 90% Grenache and 10% Carignan. 60% of the fruit is declassified Cotes-du-Rhone from vineyards in Travaillon, just east of Gigondas and northeast of Vacqueyras. All of the grapes are destemmed to allow the easy fruit to shine through. The wine is fermented and aged in tank to retain the freshness. In the glass this wine is grapy and easy drinking with very primary notes of cherry and blackberry along side of cracked black pepper. This is the perfect everyday red!
